The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
JamsThanks for explaining the bars. I thought some Conservative had made a statement.
I was walking past it yesterday and it just looked as if Mandela was behind bars. It was just one of those photos that presented itself to meor it seemed like a good idea at the time
Ahhhh, that explains it, jams. When I first saw the picture I had Sting echoing through my mind singing, "Free, free, set them free. If you love someone, set them free."
Ewbl, I am so sorry I set Sting going in your head.. I am utterly ashamed!
An icon like Mandela needs something better in the world of art like the solid silver bust by artist Billa Dhand.
